From the download page, I believe it's the same basic firmware for 450 and 550. So that would be it.

I have noticed a minor change in behavior. Now when you are nearing the cache you are pursuing, It beeps as before, but it stays in the page it's in. It may also not lock up as easily when you are caching in the woods. I think that's related to a fix to the WAAS functioning.
